'One of the more influential professional association blogs
out there,' declares contest sponsor
February 22, 2010
Washington- The ACP Advocate Blog by Bob Doherty was
cited at the conclusion of voting last week as "the Best Health
Policies/Ethics Weblog of 2009" in the 2009 Medical Blog Awards.
The announcement of the winners noted that "while representing The
American College of Physicians (ACP) on societal and public policy
issues, [Robert B. Doherty] runs one of the more influential
professional association blogs out there."
The sixth annual Medical Blog Awards were conducted by Medgadget
and sponsored by Epocrates. Finalists in seven categories were
chosen by the editors of Medgadget, "the internet journal of
emerging medical technologies," from more than 100 blogs nominated
by Medgadget readers. Online voting was conducted to determine the
winners, which were formally announced on Friday.
Begun in 2008, The ACP Advocate Blog is researched and
written several times each week by Bob Doherty, ACP's senior vice
president of Governmental Affairs and Public Policy. The blog
invites commentary on the most provocative and intriguing health
policy discussions that Doherty comes across as an advocate for
internal medicine physicians and their patients. The blog "seeks to
inform and entertain readers and to elicit thoughtful commentary
from across the political spectrum, not just from ACP members but
from others with an interest in health policy" said Doherty in
learning of the award.
Throughout the past year, The ACP Advocate Blog has
focused on the contentious health care debate in Washington.
Doherty has waded through the controversies surrounding the issues
to illuminate for his readers what the real impact of various
health care reform proposals could be. "Thanks to all who support
the blog, since any influence it has comes from you!" Doherty said
at the conclusion of last Friday's blog entry.
Doherty has worked in health policy for more than 31 years.
Starting in the governmental affairs department of the American
Society of Internal Medicine (ASIM) in 1979, he joined ACP in 1998
when ACP and ASIM merged. As senior vice president, Doherty is in
charge of ACP's Washington office, with responsibility for
legislative affairs, public policy, regulatory affairs, public
affairs, practice management and improvement, and ethics and
"I am humbled and honored by your support, but of course, a blog
is only as good as those who take the time to read it and post your
comments - even, or especially, when you disagree with me!" Doherty
told blog readers when he learned of winning the award.
The ACP Advocate Blog is hosted on the ACP Web site at:
